Benefits of a loft conversion

The foremost reason for most people is to increase the amount of space available for the family’s use. A loft conversion is also ideal for a nice little hideaway to enjoy a hobby or a game room if you’re looking to add to your living space. A home office is a viable option if you work from home as many people now do.

You can also make your house a better investment by adding a loft conversion to improve its value. Loft conversion is easily the most beneficial of all the means of improving the amount of usable space in a home.

Not requiring garden space and the short amount of time needed for the completion of a loft conversion make it more desirable than other home extension methods.

What kind of value can you expect from a loft conversion in East-Moulsecoomb? Loft conversions have been cited by a number of studies as one of the best ways to improve the worth of a house. According to research by the Nationwide Building Society, homeowners can get as much as 20% on top of the value of the home.

If a house is worth £300,000, that would mean the value will go up to £360,000. If you don’t mind the trouble and cost, a loft conversion may be the best way to add value to your home while enjoying the extra space until you’re ready to sell.

Are loft conversions really that beneficial?

Definitely. Loft conversions are definitely beneficial, regardless of why you want them – nursery, bedroom and bathroom, or something else. You wouldn’t have to wait too long before the job is completed. We must warn you that it will be messy as we work, but you’ll have no reason to regret it.

World my loft conversion project be subject to Building Regulations approval in East-Moulsecoomb? Your obtaining Building Regulations approval for your property in East-Moulsecoomb depends largely on the building and the scope of work to be carried out.

If your building is two or more storeys, then any work done must follow specific guidelines regarding any alterations to be made. The safety of the fire escape system and stairs are particular concerns and that’s why these guidelines have been put in place. Other major concerns include how stable the structure and roof are, how structurally sound the new floor is and how good the sound insulation between the loft conversion and the floors below is.

As the extent of work differs, the Building Regulations that apply also vary. If you’ll be doing extensive work like installing a stair, lining the wall of the loft or boarding it out, then there’ll most likely be regulations to guide the job. We at Clifton Hill & Montpelier Loft Conversions are used to carrying out loft conversions that are in line with the necessary guidelines that apply in East-Moulsecoomb. If there’s any need to obtain approval for the work, we’ll get it done. How much does a loft conversion cost in East-Moulsecoomb? Depending on the project, a loft conversion can cost anywhere from £20,000, even as much as three times that. What you eventually pay will be determined by factors such as your location, the size of the extension and the number of dormers. Loft conversions in East-Moulsecoomb won’t cost you a leg and an arm, unlike a number of other locations across the UK. Even better, we won’t rip you off by quoting exorbitant prices.

What are the types of loft conversions available in East-Moulsecoomb?

A number of factors come into play to determine the best kind of loft conversion for your house. The first factor to consider is how much you’re willing to spend. The second most important consideration is your house itself and how suitable it is for a loft conversion, including questions about the kind of roof you have and the amount of space available. Planning permission is also another important point to consider.

Examples of loft conversion types include:

Rooflight conversion; this involves adding roof lights to the back and front to create a new loft conversion without adding to the volume of your existing roof space. As an option, you can have windows added to the gable walls. This type of loft conversion saves cost since it doesn’t require making too many changes. Dormer conversion; here, the aim is to expand the space available by putting dormer windows into the pitched roof plane.

Depending on what you need, we can make this a small extension with only one or two windows. If needed, we can build a room that covers the whole width of the roof, so you’ll end up with full headroom and a large enough space. Hip-to-gable conversion; if your roof slopes down on every side to the eaves, then it’s a ‘hipped’ roof. Within hipped rooves, the usable space available can be expanded by putting a gable wall in place of one or more hips.

Then, the roof will be made to extend over the gables to create the needed volume. We’ll build the gable wall and rebuild the roof behind to create a raised, near vertical pitch as high as the ceiling. This will result in a wall with windows. We’re likely to use this type of loft conversion if yours is a terrace house. If the goal is a large area with full headroom, then this method would work. Mansard conversion; this involves removing your entire roof and putting a box-like structure in its place. In essence, the loft conversion will be adding a storey to your building with four near vertical tile-hung walls. We’ll then place an almost flat roof on top. Are there any kinds of houses where a loft conversion wouldn’t be practical? In most cases, a loft conversion can be done.

But, in other cases, a loft conversion may not be possible due to the shape and pitch of the existing roof. Get in touch with us right now about coming to see your house to help you determine whether a loft conversion can be done. We’ll need to find out whether the new structure would have enough support from the walls you already have. It will be easy to carry out a loft conversion if your roof has a gable end wall. On the other hand, if your roof is an intersecting pitched one, a hipped one or a trussed rafter one, we may face challenges when converting the loft. You’ll not be making a mistake by choosing us to handle your loft conversion even if yours is a complicated roof, as we’ve worked on several kinds of rooves in East-Moulsecoomb and beyond.
